When learning how to make movies, there is one major thing that can trip you up: organization. There’s no “right way” to organize your footage. But it should be organized. 

This isn’t just for your feature films. It can also help with smaller videos as well. Having organized footage is the first thing you should do, and is also the fastest way to stress you out if you don’t.

Check out this video on some of my tips and tricks to footage organization that will keep your work going smoothly.
